Huambo Land Readjustments: Urban Legal Case Studies


The monograph published by UN Habitat features case studies on two Developmment Workshop projects on land readjustment in Huambo, Angola. The monograph provides an opportunity to learn about the potential, and the challenges, of land readjustment in an African city. The cases yield information about managing land readjustment in the absence of formal legislation on land readjustment and in the context of what was, at the time of writing the report, a change in local governance structures following a decree on decentralization. The case studies also give some interesting insights into the possible mechanisms for engaging communities and the conditions necessary to do so effectively.
